I think I have a problem of buying games, but not playing them

Ok, so I just bought my 360 about 2 months ago and I've already bought 9 games for it. I need to just chill and play the games I have for now, and stop buying new ones. Because even if I do buy more new games, they will just end up sitting on the shelf, unopened for quite some time (just like some of my PS2 games, which are STILL unopened on the shelf).

I've been playing the hell outta Tiger Woods 07, and throwing in COD4 every now and then for some online action. Before that I had played a lot of Battlestations: Midway, but have yet to beat it because I'm playing the Challenges now and they are tough as nails. I was about halfway through the Challenges, but decided to give it a rest for a while. Plus, it really sucks wasting 45 minutes on a mission, only to fail and start all the way back at the beginning.

I also bought Dead Rising and I played that a little bit, but it's pretty damn tough, plus I haven't gotten my character built up hardly at all. Once I beat Tiger Woods 07 (100% game completion, that is), I'll probably start playing Dead Rising a lot more.

Then there's Def Jam Icon. It's still unopened, sitting on the shelf. It was actually the 2nd game I bought for the system. I heard it's pretty fun. The graphics are absolutely amazing, but the gameplay is kind of a hit and miss.....literally.

Gears of War is probably the best game I own. I play it with my friend via Xbox Live Co-op, but he works 2nd shift, so we hardly ever get to play together, except for the weekends, and half the time I have things I have to do during the weekends, so I don't always have time to play.

And lastly we have College Hoops 2K8, which I played the crap out of when I first got it, but don't really play much anymore. I'll probably bust it out again once college basketball season is over and I start craving some of it.

So anyway, I just bought Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion yesterday 'cause I heard it was a good game. I'm sure it will be at least 2 weeks before I get around to playing it though. I even told myself a few days ago that I don't need to go buy anymore games, I have enough for now. That sure didn't work.

I actually wanted to get Lost Odyssey instead, but since it's $60 (and I got Oblivion for $23), I figured I'll just wait until I can get LO for less than $40 on ebay or something. (Yeah right, I say that now, but watch.....I'll probably go buy it next week, LOL).
